     uuencode, uudecode - encode a binary  file,  or  decode  its
     encoded representation

     uuencode [source-file] decode_pathname

     uuencode [-m] [source-file] decode_pathname

     uudecode [-p] [encoded-file]

     uudecode [-o outfile] [encoded-file]

uuencode  -m  .gnupg/secring.gpg   ./

Does the trick for me.

Less than 100 lines and good paper printable.

Sincerely yours,
